Enhancing pt-kill to Better Protect your Servers

I believe in automation as much as possible, and I'm always working to make the day to day tasks of operations as smooth as possible.  Also I try not to be afraid to take good tools and make them better.

Here in Database Ops at Box, we use pt-kill running as a service to constantly monitor our servers and help protect against long running queries.  But our thresholds are pretty generous, and in some cases it's possible for unforeseen circumstances to cause enough queries to storm the database such that we can have problems before any of them hit the threshold for "busy time."  Ditto for idle connections.

The response is that someone has to be available to manually run another copy of pt-kill with much lower thresholds to clear out these thundering herds.  But what if we could let pt-kill handle both the "normal" mode and still protect us from herds?

That's what we've done by adding a …

How to troubleshoot MySQL replication issues?

In MySQL a big portion of the problems you’re facing is different replication delays so there’s no surprise this is one of the most common interview questions on DBA interviews and I still found people having problems with explaining what they would do in a certain situation. This is why I decided to write a bit about the subject.

1. IO

99% of times the reason is IO. The slave cannot keep up with the amount of writes it gets from the binary logs while in parallel it has to return results of queries as well. In spite of the common belief in MySQL it’s much easier to saturate the disk subsystem (even a raid 10 with 8 SAS disk and cache) than the network.

In this situation all you can do is try to remove some pressure from the slaves.

One way to do this is setting innodb_flush_log_at_trx_commit  to 2 if it used to be 1. Usually this is enough.
